We stayed here for 6 nights and had an ensuite. Good location as it is a 15-20 minute walk to the main square (if you don't get lost).The hostel looks very nice, with great interior design and furnishings. However the bathroom stunk of sewerage everytime the toliet is flushed and even though there is aircon in the room, you can hardly feel it. The manager Mohammed seemed very nice when we first arrived, giving us mint tea and telling us what to do during our stay. However, his over enthusiasm seems a bit fake and after asking for the money owed to us many times, he dropped the act on the last day when he probably realised that he wasn't going to recieve any extra money from us threw our change at us and was extremely rude. He left a bad taste in my mouth as our stay could have been a good one (besides the toliet) as the breakfast was very nice and the hostel had a great atmosphere. Another issue was that we informed him out of courtesy that we would be going on a desert trip for 3 days and he told us to take all our things out of the room and leave them in a seperate room as the cleaners cleaned the room every 2 days. That made us a bit suspicious as to why you would need to take all the bags out just for a clean. His real motives came to light when we got back from our trip and headed to our rooms. One member of staff told us to wait as there are people staying in our room and he needed to call Mohammed to confirm. Luckily for them, the people had moved out before we arrived (which was late at night). If you pay for room for x nights, you would expect that you have the room for x nights, not how many night you are present. There are many other places to stay which are the same price but better in Marrakech, so avoid this place.
Just be warned if you want to stay here that people may seem friendly, but don't let your guard down and if you using this as a base for travelling around Morocco, don't waste your money here as when you are away, they will give your rooms to other people just to make some extra money.
